Paranormal Activity 2
Short Story:
The follow-up to the supernatural thriller, Paranormal Activity, documents one family as they try to uncover the truth behind a series of home break-ins. But when they place multiple cameras throughout the house, it becomes clear that there are far more sinister forces at work.

What They're Saying:
"Even when nothing is happening, the often dead-silent shots tend to grow scarier the more you look at them." - Entertainment Weekly

"Eagle-eyed audiences watching every corner of the screen are rewarded with spooky "did-you-see-that?" moments." - NY Daily News

Good For Kids?
Keep the kids far away from this spooky thriller.

Hereafter
Short Story:
Director Clint Eastwood’s latest creation, Hereafter walks the thin and mysterious line between life and whatever lies beyond it. The supernatural drama follows a middle-class laborer (Matt Damon), a French journalist (Cécile De France), and a London schoolboy whose lives are all touched by death in different manners.

What They're Saying:
"It has the power to haunt the skeptical, to mystify the credulous and to fascinate everyone in between." - New York Times

"[It's] optimistic. Hokey, even. But it's beautiful, too." - Philadelphia Inquirer

Good For Kids?
The flick's themes may be a bit heavy for the kids.

In case you missed...

RED
Short Story:
Based on the classic DC Comics series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, RED follows retired CIA agents Frank (Bruce Willis), Joe (Morgan Freeman), Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren) as they fight to clear their names and expose one of the biggest cover-ups in CIA history. 

What They're Saying:
"RED stands for 'Retired, Extremely Dangerous,' though 'Reasonably Entertaining Diversion' works too." - Chicago Tribune

"Classiest. Comic. Book. Movie. Ever." - Village Voice

Good For Kids?
While it's not the perfect children's movie, the kids will surely get a kick out of this action-packed comedy.

Jackass 3-D
Short Story:
The crazy antics continue as Johnny Knoxville and crew take on more outrageous stunts in this 3-D adaptation of their MTV show and movies.

What They're Saying:
"While Jackass 3D can never be accused of stinting on its spring-loaded arsenal of projectile bodily fluids, neither does it approach that sublime, laugh-until-it-hurts level of gross-out nirvana that made the first two installments so darned irresistible." - The Hollywood Reporter

"Johnny Knoxville and Co., who are constantly outdoing themselves with crazy and creative pranks and stunts, would seem to be just the right guys to do that sort of thing. But very little occurs in their latest movie, Jackass 3-D, that wouldn't have sufficed in 2-D." - Associated Press

Good For Kids?
Jackass 3D will definitley make an impression on the kids -- and it won't be a good one.

Secretariat
Short Story:
Based on a true story (and the novel by William Nack), Secretariat follows Penny Chenery (Diane Lane), a Virginia housewife who inherits her father's famed Meadow Stables. Despite being a novice, the modest housewife commandeers the male-dominated horse-racing business, producing the 1973 Triple Crown winner and, perhaps, the greatest racehorse of all time.

What They're Saying:
"Secretariat, a benignly inspirational Disney sports drama about the legendary racehorse who won the Triple Crown in 1973, offers a fascinating test case for how much spoilers sometimes don't matter." - Entertainment Weekly

"It is a great film about greatness, the story of the horse and the no less brave woman who had faith in him." - Chicago Sun-Times

Good For Kids?
What kid wouldn't want to watch a pony strut around a race track?
